Xavi praises Robert Lewandowski. “Great as a man, winner and colleague”

On Wednesday evening, the Catalans had a huge advantage from the start, and Lewandowski turned out to be the champion. He scored two goals in the first half (2-0 and 3-1) and in the 67th minute – then in the 4-1 minute. In the end, Barcelona won 5: 1.

The veteran footballer joined Barcelona in July from Bayern Munich for €45 million (plus 5 million variants). You rarely pay such an amount for a 34-year-old striker, but in the Catalan club, no one regrets this decision.

– We had no doubts about his worth and his age. Start. He’s a great guy, a winner, a teammate. It also has to do with how the team works around it, putting pressure on competitors. That’s the key to success,” Xavi said after Wednesday’s game.

The Polish scored two goals after accurate shots from a distance and a goal after hitting his head.

Since the start of his career in the Champions League, Lewandowski has scored 89 goals.

I don’t know if Robert is the best striker in Europe, but for us he is the best. He helps us play, puts pressure on us, and gives us a lot of solutions in attack. He shows complete maturity as a competitor, absolutely stunning. He scored a hat-trick, but it was also important how he worked with the team. He is humble and always hard working. I don’t have enough compliments for him – confirmed the Barcelona coach.

“He’s totally insatiable when it comes to scoring and winning,” he added.

Wednesday evening was special for Lewandowski, because his wife Anna celebrated her birthday on that day.

– These goals have. The fact that she was at the stadium on her birthday means a lot. Amazing thing for me – the Polish striker admitted after the match.

By the way, he once again confirmed that he feels comfortable in the new club.

– I knew right away that it would be important here to adapt, to adapt correctly to the first match. People ask about goals, but it’s important to be in the right place to help the team because my team-mates helped me a lot on and off the field, Lewandowski emphasized.
